Laine scores twice as Jets beat Stars

Connor scores first NHL goal, Hellebuyck makes 38 saves

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

WINNIPEG - You just knew that after a strong showing, but the wrong result, the other night in the Big D, they would come out and get the job done tonight.

They've been trending that way - the right way - for some time, but just haven't been rewarded.

Until tonight.

This was a different Winnipeg Jets team. For the first time all year, they played with a lead, loved it, and floored it right to the finish line,

Patrik Laine scored a pair of power-play goals, Kyle Connor picked up his first NHL tally, and Tyler Myers netted the other in a 4-1 win over the Stars.

Dennis Beyak & Shane Hnidy tee up tonight's game between the Jets & Stars

  • 03:06 •

WINNIPEG -Tonight's tilt between the Winnipeg Jets (2-4-0) and the Dallas Stars (3-2-1) could be about the Jets avenging Tuesday's loss in Dallas.

While that will be the case for many in the Jets dressing room, for Kyle Connor, it may be just as much about opportunity.

The 19-year-old Connor was scratched when the Jets dropped a 3-2 decision to the Stars. Now after watching one game, Connor is expected to skate with Nikolaj Ehlers and Mathieu Perreault tonight.

Rest and recovery vital to Jets' upcoming stretch

Following Tuesday's game in Dallas, the Jets landed back in Winnipeg at 2:05am

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

WINNIPEG - One cup just wasn't enough. Two or three? Now we're talking.

Coffee cures all, right?

Following a hard-fought 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Stars last night, the Jets landed back in Winnipeg at 2:05am CT and, depending on the time to drive home, many were in bed about a half hour later, giving most about five or six hours of proper pillow time before heading back to the rink for another day.

Most of the players got a proper night's rest with a team meeting and off-ice workout (and a light skate for some) beginning at noon, but after a physical night in the Big D, there definitely some weary eyes around the dressing room.

But that didn't stop anyone from having a productive day.

Armia shines, but Jets fall to Stars

Winnipeg fires 30 shots, but Niemi preserves win for Dallas

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

DALLAS, Texas - Paul Maurice was right when he said these divisional games had a different feel to them.

We're certainly not in 'must-win' territory just yet, but you could definitely sense the added pressure to perform in this critical October affair.  

The Jets, having lost three of their first five to start the young season, were facing an injury-riddled Stars team in the opening end of a home-and-home series, and were eager to show they would be no easy beat in the stout Central Division this year.

With each of their next three - including two on the road - being played against divisional opponents, it was an opportunity to make a statement, of sorts, and keep pace before embarking on their most difficult stretch of the season.

They did that, but the result didn't fall their way.

The Jets were in control for much of the night, resulting in one of the better performances of the season so far, but on the strength of 28 saves from goaltender Antti Niemi, the Stars prevailed 3-2.

DALLAS, Texas - With the festivities of the Heritage Classic behind them, the Winnipeg Jets (2-3-0) focus is on this week's home-and-home series with the Dallas Stars, which gets underway tonight in Texas.

"The Heritage Classic was a great experience. Everyone had a lot of fun and a lot of us had family and friends in town," said Shawn Matthias.

"That was great, but that's over now. So now it's back to work again tonight and we need the two points."

Head coach Paul Maurice talks about the busy week ahead and how critical these upcoming games against the Central Division are

  • 07:11 •

WINNIPEG - The 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic was everything it was built up to be, but after a busy few days before, during and after, the prevailing mood around the locker room Monday was that was good to "get back to normal."

"It will be nice to get back into a rhythm," captain Blake Wheeler said before the team flew to Dallas. "Last week was a little strange. We didn't play for a few days, and everything around the Heritage Classic was a little unique. Overall it was a great experience, but we're excited to get back at it tomorrow."

The Jets will play 17 games in the next 29 days, with the majority of them being spent on the road. In fact, the next time the team will spend just two (or more) consecutive days at home in Winnipeg will not be until Dec. 12 and 13.

"I've never seen (a schedule) like this," Head Coach Paul Maurice said. "It's not the number of games, they're just things we've never dealt with before."

Oilers top Jets in 2016 Heritage Classic

Despite loss, Jets proud to have held event in Winnipeg

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

WINNIPEG - The experience, they said, was once-in-a-lifetime.

A spectacle - like nothing we'd ever seen before.

From the very announcement several months ago, to now, having enjoyed the week's many festivities - including one of, if not the best and mostly highly anticipated alumni games ever played - the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic made good on those promises, leaving many with all sorts of wonderful memories and 'we were there'-type moments forever engrained in photo and film.

Unfortunately for the home team, just one thing was left out of an otherwise incredible weekend.

Mark Letestu, Darnell Nurse and Zack Kassian scored second-period goals, while Cam Talbot made 31 saves to give the Oilers a 3-0 win over the Jets.

Connor Hellebuyck made 29 saves in a losing cause.
